Things To Be Thankful For Today

Sometimes, it is easier to dwell on what we are missing , rather than what we have. During this Holiday with family, especially after the past year, take time out and remember all of the things to be thankful for instead of the things that cause us stress every day. Take time to reflect on the things that bring you joy to your life. I am grateful for so many this Thanksgiving. I urge my readers to make  your own list of ten things you are grateful for.
